The anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh April 24 2014, 0 Comments

Today marks the anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which killed over 1,333 people, seriously injured thousands more, and left hundreds of children orphaned. The building was the sweatshop of several famous clothing brands. One year after the disaster, victims have still not been fully and fairly compensated.

The Rana Plaza disaster serves to bring broad awareness of the dangerous and difficult conditions low-wage garment industry workers face and a growing movement of people asking questions about how their clothes are made and declaring that cheaper doesn't always mean better.
